Multiple Fire Crews Dispatched to Business Fire

Firefighters from multiple agencies were on the scene of what was a fully involved fire at a business in Blodgett, Missouri. More than eight crews were dispatched to around 3:30 Wednesday morning, Sept. 4, to an intense fire at Tank Tech at the intersection of Highway H and Locust. Highway H is back open. According fire officials the fire started in the building’s offices, but what sparked the fire is not clear. No foul play is suspected. Officials said the fire moved from the office at the south end of the building to the warehouse. Crews battled to keep the flames from spreading to Bridgeport, a business nearby. Flames from the fire shot up to 40 feet into the air. There were no injuries reported and the structure was vacant at the time of the fire. As of 5:18 a.m. crews were putting out hot spots and extinguishing flames on the backside of the building. Crews were able to save some paperwork and items from the offices.
